    This Whisky was sold for 255 € at Whiskyauction in Oct. 2015

    A good dram, easily drinkable but not lacking character, even if Banff is usually more extreme.
    • Nose
      Starts rather big and aromatic on a very ‘idiosyncratic’ mix of

      orange juice, mustard and coal, but gets then a little drier and

      dustier, with some slightly stale/sourish notes (old white wine).

      Whiffs of farmyard after the rain, apple juice, then more coal,

      stove, soot… Old style for sure, unlike any ‘current’ whisky.
    • Taste
      Sweeter and a tad rounder, a good attack on notes of mead and arak, figs, prunes and then something more cardboardy and slightly tea-ish. A little more pepper too, but the palate is a little more easy-easy than the nose.
    • Finish
      Medium long, clean, on figs and café latte. Not much ‘Banffness’ here.

  3. The Macallan scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    Found this one on an Estate some years ago. A bit dissapointing this one was. I expected more from the sherry notes, but I didn`t what the color promissed. I loved the RM version more.
